Pride

On Saturday, Lyn attended Albuquerque's Pride parade.  She has attended for the past several years and completely enjoys herself.  The parade is a bright, colorful and happy event.  Lyn caught a purple football and whistle this year along with several strands of beads.  The people who attend enjoy themselves and there is a great festive air about it as you will find in so many other Pride events around the world.

Yesterday morning, we woke up to the devastating news of the massacre in Orlando.  Mom's having to keep an eye on the news today and for the foreseeable future.  We don't want to have Lyn confronted by this news if we can help it.  It will upset her for days unnecessarily.

Lyn can't do anything to change America's approach to guns.  You and I can.   We can help change the dialogue because praying for the victims of violence is not enough.
